This morning, after working all night, I drove to Manhattan Beach to…Adopt-A-Kid-For a Day. Yeah, it’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while and I finally stepped up to the plate. It was a great day and a great way to give a little back. I really want to be a part of the solution. I mean that in general in many aspects of my life. No, I’m not perfect, but I aspire to be one of the people who care about humanity…like my mother.

I was paired with a 7 year-old and his 8 year-old friend along with another mentor. We got in the water with them, taught them how to fly a kite, participated in a 3-legged race, etc. It was wonderful experience and something I’m sure I’ll do again in the future.

Check this out! I went surfing today! Yup, sure did. AND paddle into, caught, and stood up on the very first wave I attempted to catch. I hooked up with a few people at work and had a blast. I think it might be something I want to do on a more consistent basis and it’s much more fun than going to the gym…although I need to go to the gym to be able to do it. It wore my a** out!

Audition: “Charter Communications” @ Ross Lacy Casting. Can we just skip to the callback already??? It’s been since forever it seems.

Audition: “Cox Communications” @ Michael Sanford Casting. I really like Michael Sanford; he’s just seems like a super nice guy, but I hate trying to park near his office in Hollywood, lol!

Anyway, the audition the audition went fine…neither here nor there.

Time for my yearly comprehensive physical examination. I’m fortunate to have qualified for SAG medical coverage, consistently for the past 12+ years. It gives me a feeling of accomplishment in my acting career that can sometimes slip away in the day-to-day journey…especially when I’m asking someone how they want their burger cooked at 4 in the morning…

Anyway, I appear to be in pretty great shape according to my results. I’m definitely getting a little banged up by the night job, but I’m fortunate and making it work for me the best I can. I’ve even started to hit the gym again…I’ve been told that the gym is a good thing, LOL!

Oh yeah, there HAS to be a better way to perform a prostate exam. If you haven’t had one…it sucks. No, really it does.

Audition/Tape: “Chuck” @ Patrick Rush Casting. This office has cast me twice in the past and I am way overdue for a third one, but I don’t think it’s going to be this one. I wasn’t terrible, but I don’t think I nailed it either…not happy about that. I haven’t had many TV/Film appointments lately and I have to make each and every one count.

Audition: “Bank of America” @ Ross Lacy Casting. This was quick-fast, pretty simple…how about let’s book something?

Callback: “McDonald’s” @ Kathy Knowles Casting. Yes! I left feeling really good about this one. I think the director and I had a real connection. Of course, the director doesn’t usually make the final decision…at least not alone, but I felt it was a start. Who the heck knows with these things?

I also finally got my birthday present today…my new iPhone4! I must admit that I am soo excited. My current phone is being retired for one that, hopefully, works better.

Audition: “Target” @ Davis/Baddeley Casting. This was a blast; I even had a girlfriend in the scene. Imagine that! Hopefully, I’ll get a callback. I think it might be a holiday spot.

Audition: “McDonald’s” @ Kathy Knowles Casting. Good time, good actors; hopefully I’ll get a callback. While I was waiting to audition a woman came in who I thought I recognized, but I couldn’t figure out from where. We happened to be in the same group and when she slated her name it came to me. We had worked on “CSI” together almost 10 years ago!
